Count The Days

Roses and rose petals on ground at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR—June 2012

We count our life in years,

But what about the days?

All the seconds of life?

Cherish all the minutes.

It’s in those moments,

Memories are made,

Chances are taken,

Changes often happen.

Treasure every breath.

Celebrate each day.

Give thanks for your life.

Syllabic Verse

My grand-daughter messaged me today to tell me I have lived 27,365 days so far! Where did all those days go?

It seems a lot longer when you view your life as days rather than years!

It’s pretty amazing to think about, and so inspired the thoughts for this poem.

Creamsicle Sky, sunset, Oregon

Celebrating late

National Creamsicle Day

Creamsicle sunset

Haiku

Tonite we had the most beautiful sunset in different shades and layers of orange, peach and cream colors. The camera on my phone just didn’t capture the colors exactly as I saw them because as I looked at it I thought of a Creamsicle which I have always loved to eat!

A quick Google search told me that National Creamsicle Day was on August 14th which was two days ago, but the sky was cloudy then and there wasn’t a sunset, so I guess God decided to celebrate it late and gave us this creamsicle sky tonight! 😊
